Overnight apple cinnamon oatmeal

overnight oatmeal

Wouldn't it be nice to have breakfast ready as you wake up in the morning? I love waking up to aromatic scents from slow cooker. Walking into the kitchen makes me happy because our entire apartment is usually perfumed with sweet scent of apples and cinnamon, just like apple pie. As I mentioned already so many times, breakfast is a must! So, when it comes to fast and balanced breakfast options, it's hard to beat overnight oats. 

1 1/2 cups milk (I used whole milk)

1 1/2 cups water

coconut oil spray (or any cooking spray)

2 unpeeled apples and cut into small cubes

1 cup rolled oats

2 tablespoons honey

1 1/2 tablespoon butter

1 cinnamon stick (remove from slow cooker when oatmeal is ready)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup nuts- almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts

Before you go to bed: Bring milk and water to a boil in saucepan over medium-high heat. Coat slow cooker with coconut oil spray (cooking spray). Place hot milk with water, apples, oats, butter, honey, salt and cinnamon in slow cooker and stir well. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until oats are tender.

After you wake up: Spoon oatmeal into bowls, top with honey and nuts while and enjoy your nutritious breakfast!
